At Comiket 84 which starts today, an original TV anime series titled "Wizard Barristers" was announced to air next year in 2014. The director is Umetsu Yasunomi, currently directing the NoitaminA show "Galilei Donna". It will be made by studio ARMS which previously made anime like "Maoyuu Maou Yuusha". Exact schedule and other staff/cast information is not known yet.

Official anime website: http://wizardbarristers.com/

Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil on MAL
Modified by myanimelistllc, Aug 31, 2016 5:19 AM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Way more excited for this then I should be. I'm wondering if it will have hentai scenes like Kite and Mezzo Forte, seeing as it looks very similar to those anime.

When I saw the PV yesterday I recognized Umetsu Yasunomi's character design instantly. Will watch of course.

It looks interesting at the very least.

Same, I didn't read anything and within the first second where it shows Cecil I knew it was him. No one else gives characters hair quite like that.

That's some edgy stuff there, and action packed for sure.

The main girl's design put me off a bit. Her facial structure is too round.



Story and art seem promising though

I, have no idea what this is about, so until I do I'm going to go with cautious optimism.

I'm not really looking forward to this to be honest. That preview and ARMs....

Guess I'll give the first episode a try to decide on 1st impressions though.

Holy cow, this is gonna be done by ARMS? The animation looks absolutely great!

It'll be nice eye candy at least.

Looks to be this anime will be 90% action, 5% plot, 5% fluff

I disagree, don't assume all anime from a certain company to be the status quo.

You have shows just like that rated 10... some of them by ARMS... I don't understand?

I'm not a huge fan of fanservicey shows, unless they are fun and have style. Even then I can only handle so much. This looks good though, and I've noticed pretty much no one here has seen Kite or Mezzo, which you'll notice I rated rather low and am still excited for this. It looks like a more refined version of those shows, mixed with Tetsuwan Birdy. It will be a fun watch. Amazing? no.

It's funny to see people complaining about charadesigns. It's classic Umetsu's designs. He use them for all his anime. The only exception — upcoming Galilei Donna which has another charadesigner.

Th girl on PV looks kinda weird, and nothing much really catch my attention on it. But since it's Arms stucio, i can only imagine two things : It's going to have some fanservice, and Faylan will be on the Opening song

Let's just see

I didn't like her too much, but it was only PV. She looks bit stange. It looks how action-packed series (explosions etc.) and it makes me desire to watch it.

When she did the magic things on scooter, it reminded me magic circles from FMA.

I have to say, after watching that PV in HD I'm pretty sold.

Why is everyone praising Kite so much? It wasn't that great, it was alright.

Might check it out, but I'm not expecting much. Fanservice in trailer... @.@

This anime looks very edgy with a very moe artstyle to it and quite a few pretty ladies in it. Like the story too.

The animation looks very nice, seems like it'll have a lot action packed scenes too. I'm not expecting to be great, but at least enjoyable.

Not really a fan of the CGI used, but apart from that the animation looks great. The mc doesn't really inspire me, though.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Wow, I'm actually quite excited for this. I mean, after seeing all those PVs in glorious HD, it's certainly become one of my hyped for winter.
